Scheme name: Exhibition Road

Practice: Dixon Jones Ltd

Client: Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea

Photographer: Olivia Woodhouse

Dixon Jones won the design competition to integrate vehicle and foot traffic and provide an attractive pedestrian environment without unduly compromising the road's role as a key transport link.

As a result of long consultation with disability groups, colour, texture and scale are utilised to inform users of the extent and margins of the four-metre-wide 'safe areas' with continuous strips of 'corduroy' paving and drainage grilles contrasting with the background grey and diagonal pink granite setts. Street clutter has been reduced to a minimum.
